Is car rental and car sharing the same thing?
No, car sharing is a short-term rental, most often for locals in big cities. Hire is a long-term service of a day or more, most often for tourists and business travelers. Thanks to a trip on a rental car, it becomes possible to explore every corner of the selected region, to see its attractions in a short period of time, because only you are the owner of a car in a given period of time. Car sharing needs to be sought, to catch a free car through the radar, the car may not have a child seat, and the car itself may simply not be there. In general, renting a car is better.

What are the pitfalls when renting cars abroad?
There are basic concepts such as deposit, deductible and additional services (often, unfortunately, hidden). Due to competition, large rental companies are forced to offer cheap car rentals and resort to various tricks that allow them to rent cars at the lowest price on the market. At the same time, they are forced to earn money on maintenance fees, fines, underfilling of fuel, and the most unpleasant of all possible ones is compensation for damage for repairs. All “rental companies” to some extent earn on the “repair”, because accidents happen (this is a fact). We are doing our best to deal with such incidents with our customers - whether the customer really caused damage to the rental company and whether there was anything to recover. All the reviews that we post on the site are real and greatly facilitate the choice of a perfect rental company. Ask anyone who has ever rented a car anywhere – good reviews are just as important as low prices.

Where can I rent a car online?
Through our service you can order cheap cars in different parts of the world: Athens and Karlovy Vary, Paphos, Athens, Heraklion and Chania, fabulous Rhodes and Santorini. Local companies are independent family businesses that have their own fleet of 10 cars or more, which they rent. Such rentals are essentially individuals, but they work officially, under a contract, and their activities are regulated by law, which is very important. Renting a car from private traders without a contract is an extremely risky occupation, we do not advise anyone to practice it.
Is fuel included in the rental price?
No, rentals indicate prices through our online car rental service excluding fuel, i.e. you will have to refuel the rented car with gas or diesel. But in most cases, the vehicle is already delivered with a full tank and the return must also be made with a full tank. On the Greek islands of Crete and Corfu, cars are almost always returned with the same amount that they received, such a fuel policy is called the same / same or amount / amount. In rare cases, cunning distributors can practice the full / empty policy (for example, in Limassol), but we try not to work with such ones.

What is the difference between a deposit and a franchise?
A deposit is the amount you want to freeze in cash or on a card. It will be returned immediately after returning the car or after a while (maybe fines will come after the return). In this case, the deductible is the limit of liability for the vehicle (if it has CDW insurance). That is, a deductible is the limit of damage that is recoverable from the client’s wallet. The rest is covered by the CDW insurance company. The deductible and the deposit may not coincide in size, for example, in Greece, Prague, Georgia and Armenia, the deposit is often lower than the deductible. In Spain and Croatia, a deposit may be asked to be left only with a freeze on a card. But in Bulgaria for example, the deposit amount is almost always taken in cash – in local currency.
